I'm not really new to the group, I left and came back. Last time I was here dh and I joined a gym. But due to some things beyond our control we quit. Back on 12-24 I got on a scale I was at 220 I decided then I needed to change that. Started eating healthy, walking more, more physical stuff. Well on 12-30 I got back on a scale it said 216. So over a week I lost 4 pounds. On 1-9 I got back on the scale at a routine doc appt. it showed 202. I dropped another 10 pounds. I asked me doc if that was ok. He said dropping to much is not good. So I slowed down on the weight loss. On 1-19 I went to buy new pants. I down to a size 18, I have not been and 18 in almost 4 years now. I have an appt to go back next week to see If I am still dropping weight like crazy or has it slowed down.

I know 14 pounds is a lot but I'm happy, I have no been under 200 in about 6 years. Dh told me that he can see I'm loading weight.

Thank you.

I eat fruits as a snack when I want something fast I can grab and munch on when i want something but don't feel like cooking anything and with fruit it's grab and go & having a 2 year old he helps keep me busy


Quoting emilyrosenj:

Keep up the good work and make sure you are eating enough!

 Omg congrats!!! Hitting the Under-200 mark is a HUGE milestone. I've danced around it over and under so many times.

I have lost 9 pounds in 20 days. I'm worried its to fast too. But as long as we are eating healthy and not eating below our BMR should be good!

Congratulations! I just started trying to lose weight again too. I lost 10 pounds this week! I was not trying to lose that much. I wasn't even counting calories. I was just having fun with my workouts and went back to eating clean. As long as you aren't starving yourself, it should be fine. A lot of people lose a lot the first couple of weeks and then it slows down.
